INDIANA SOCCER FORMING PART OF PROJECT "SOCCER FOR PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING" IN JORDAN

March 20, 2013 07:56 PM


Ball State University, in collaboration with Indian Soccer, received a two-year grant from the United States State Department’s International Sports Programming Initiative (ISPI) to support Soccer for Peace and Understanding in Jordan. Through the project, Ball State University and Indiana Soccer partnered with Leaders of Tomorrow, Jordan Football Association, and Princess Basma Youth Resource Centre to teach citizenship and peaceful living skills through soccer clinics for youth coaches and athletes.

The program aims to promote empathetic on-going relations between Jordanian and U.S. youth soccer coaches, encourage youth soccer coaches’ effective citizenship behaviors with young athletes through soccer, advance Jordanians and U.S. youth soccer coaches’ knowledge about the technical aspects of coaching soccer effectively, and increase Jordanian and U.S. youth soccer players’ soccer skills while learning ways to peacefully interact with others of different cultures.
